Hi, Klyates. Taking Topamax strictly for weight loss may be disappointing for you. It isn't a weight loss drug and not everyone who takes it loses weight. I lost about ten pounds but there were other variables like: summer and I was living on ice water--I hate summer. We had just moved to a place I did not want to go and I was grieving loss of job, friends and the beginnings of a fraying marriage; my rib had broken during the packing process and I was in serious pain. I couldn't eat worth a damn. Plus I was depressed, living on the deep down side of bipolar II.
So yes, I lost weight, but was it the drug or the circumstances? Please pay close attention to Kat's suggestions about starting slowly even if you become impatient--most people who do lose weight don't see any change until around 200 mgs.
Resist the temptation to just zip on up there as fast as possible no matter what your doctor says.
And sad to say, stupid calories and carbs do count, so focus on the veggies and all that blah blah blah.
Have a just wonderful day with this wonderful message. Really, though, best of luck.
